Samantha Bain-Mollison, retail director at Shaftesbury, said: “We are delighted that American Eagle and Aerie have chosen Carnaby’s Foubert’s Place as the location to bring both brands to the UK customer.
“The launches add to the exciting lineup of recent openings in the area including Metal Morphosis, Just Hype, Motley London and Aubin alongside NBA store and Adidas Originals who have chosen Foubert’s Place as their store location.”
Nish Soneji, CEO, American Eagle Europe, Aerie Europe, added: “As experts in bringing US fashion brands to the UK and Europe, we had to ensure the locations for American Eagle and Aerie’s first London stores not only resonate with London’s young and trend-savvy fashion consumers but would also make a dramatic impact for these game-changing brands.
“With its mix of vibrant and directional international fashion players we knew instinctively that Foubert’s Place and the Carnaby area was the perfect backdrop as a springboard for both American Eagle and Aerie in the UK.”
